ALGERIA - The morning after can be a little rough, but chances are, it didn't leave you with any physical scars. But one Algerian man says he suffered trauma after waking up next to his new bride.

The man says the woman always wore makeup leading up to the wedding. The morning after when he saw her bare-faced, he thought she was a thief who had broken into his apartment. At least that's what he told a judge.

The man is suing the woman for fraud and asking for $20,000 in damages.

It's probably safe to say this couple won't have a happily ever after.
